So ,we decided this morning we were going to go to the North Shore to see the waves and watch the surfers. In January/February, the North Shore is famous for the enormous 25-50 ft swells.
We stopped on the way in Haleiwa town and ate lunch at Cholos(Mexican). After lunch, we continued north on Kamehameha Highway until we came to a stop. Today being a holiday and of course the beautiful 75 degree weather- didn't hurt, everyone had the same idea.
It was around 1:00 and we had to be home by 3:00 because the plumber was coming. We quickly turned around and decided we would just go to Haleiwa Beach instead. The waves aren't as big there, but we were thinking the kids could run around and collect some coral.
When we got to the beach there were all of these tide pools. We had so much fun looking at all of the little creatures that were there. We found hermit crabs, ghost crabs, different kinds of fish and some really neat pieces of coral.
We are still planning on going and seeing the waves, but we'll wait until everyone is at work and school.
